Waiting on Wednesday: 3 Hot Upcoming YA Releases! 11/30/11

WoW is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine and showcases upcoming releases we're dying to read!

release: Aug 2012
The trees swallowed her brother whole. And Jenny was there to see it. Years later, when she returns to the woods where Tom was taken to say good-bye at last, she finds herself lured into a world where stunning beauty masks the most treacherous of evils, and strange and dangerous creatures await—creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with allegiances that shift as much as his moods. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack’s help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say, and she’s faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice—and not just her own.
Sounds very dramatic

release: July 2012

A girl and a vampire fall madly in love... The girl's best friend is deeply unimpressed.

Not much to go on but the authors are good

release: June 2012

Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she's never met. Lately all of her energy is spent battling the constant storms plaguing the Dust Bowl and their effects on her health. Callie is left alone, when her mother goes missing in a dust storm. Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in "the golden hills of the west" (California). 
Along the way she meets Jack a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company—there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there's also an otherworldly threat to Callie. Warring fae factions, attached to the creative communities of American society, are very aware of the role this half-mortal, half-fae teenage girl plays in their fate.

Described as good for lovers of the Gemma Doyle series

What are you waiting for? 


Stina said...

Wow, lots of faerie books.

The second one sounds like Twilight. But I'm guessing it won't be the same judging from who the authors are.

Golden Eagle said...

I wonder what the girl's best friend is going to do about it . . .

The third one intrigues me--not many Paranormal books take place in the earlier 1900s!

Tales of Whimsy said...

Great picks!

Doesn't the chick on the cover of book one look like Julia Jones?

Wendy Darling said...

Awesome picks! I happen to waiting for all three of these as well. And, um, about 300 other books... *sigh*

A Beautiful Madness said...

I'm really curious about Team Human. We don't know much, but I really like both authors. Great picks!
A Beautiful Madness

Katie said...

Treachery reminds me of The Iron King by Julia Kagawa. in it, Meghan goes to into faerie to rescue her brother...

Krazyyme @ Young Readers

Blodeuedd said...

Sounds like a few good ones

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Those look good, but I admit, I want The Treachery of Beautiful Things!!

Dazzling Mage said...

The Treachery of Beautiful Things looks AMAZING. As for Dust Girl.. I'm a fan of the Gemma Doyle series, but this doesn't draw me like the other series.. Still might give it a try.

Great picks!

LoriStrongin said...

Ooh, Dust Girl looks goood. Creepy cover! I'm usually a fan of stories where the teen protag needs to save their parents, rather than the other way around. Makes for an interesting dynamic and compelling coming of age angle.

Team Human sounds like it's going to be amusing. Nice choices! :)
